If you qualify for a senior meal at Denny’s (like me) you probably remember the sitcom Mork & Mindy that debuted in the late 70s. You may recall that Mork was an alien from the planet Ork. The unique thing about Orkans is they aged backward, they are born old and get physically younger with […]
In late October 2018, Dave Stephenson released his most recent book, Notes from the Bardo. In this book, Dave shares his experiences of his first two years as a full-time RVer alone on the road in a Class C RV, starting off as a know-nothing newbie, and learning valuable experiences as he traveled through the […]
